Tecumseh Superintendent Resigns Following Guilty Plea

Brad Martin has submitted his resignation as the superintendent of the Tecumseh School District in Clark County.  The school board voted unanimously to accept his resignation on Tuesday, but deny any severance pay.

Martin had been suspended without pay since January and recently accepted a plea deal related to three felony counts that stated he used school funds to support a gambling habit.

An investigation by law enforcement revealed Brad Martin stole money from the school to spend more than 300 days gambling at a casino.

Under the term's of Martin's deal, he plead guilty to three felony charges and will make restitution to the district from his State Teachers Retirement account. A pre-sentencing hearing on the felony charges has been set for June 30.

School officials declined to make a statement and neither Martin nor his attorney returned calls seeking comment.
